This article, written by a CNN by Tony Marco, reports the decision made this past week concerning the state of New York's decision to allow women to have an abortion up to the moment of birth. This decision is nothing but evil and wicked. There is no care in this decision for women's rights, or the health of women. As it says in the report, now anyone, not just a medical doctor, can perform the abortion for the woman. This decision is not about the health of women, nor is it about the protection of women. No, this decision is made by those who do not value human life, and in the end, have no love for children. This is the key issue. Governor Cuomo is not a good man looking out for the health of women, but rather is a man that hates children and cares nothing for their livelihood.
I know this is strong, and uncharitable language. To say a man hates children is not kind. But, I beg you to think about it. A man that allows children to be butchered in the womb, killed in the womb, right before birth, is this a man that loves children? Is this a man that cares for the life of children? Is this a man that desires to live sacrificially for children? Is this law the work of people that love children and desire what is best for them? No. It is a law passed by people that believe children are a burden and do nothing but ruin our planes for life and our own pursuit of happiness.
After this law was passed, the One Word Trade Center was colored Pink to celebrate the liberation of women in this progress in women's reproductive rights. However, we should not see pink, but rather gold, as the tower is nothing more than a golden idol upon which is sacrificed the children that God created in the womb. This law is not about women's health, but about sacrificing our children for the sake of sinful pleasures and progress.
I am a pastor, and I became a pastor because I desire to comfort those who struggle with sin and desire to be forgiven. I became a pastor because I want to comfort people in the love they have in God in Christ Jesus their Lord. When we weaken the poison, we weaken the cure. When we downplay sin, we downplay the work that Jesus does for us on the cross. I am speaking about this issue to ask that you would look into it for what it is, a sin against God and an attack against our neighbor, both the mother and the child. This is not saying that every woman who has an abortion hates her baby. No. I am not saying that. There are women in certain situations who are terrified in conscience and make a decision that weighs on them for the rest of their life. However, we do not solve that attack of the devil by making abortion ok, but rather by comforting that terrified woman, or man, in the forgiveness of their sins. However, if we make abortion nothing, then there is nothing to forgive, and we let the devil continue to be the preacher rather than Jesus.
What do we do then? Well, first and foremost let us support with utter zeal out local pregnancy center in Tomball. Let's support these good people who love children and want to help women as they keep their babies. Let us love the children we have as our own, and all children. Let's have a congregation in which children are the priority, a congregation in which we see the physical, mental, emotional, and most importantly the spiritual well being of children as our greatest delight. Let us pray for women who have had abortions, who are under the tyranny of the devil, and who suffer every day for their decisions. Let us pray for them, and be a haven for them of absolution, a place in which we offer them solace and refuge from the attacks of the devil and the despair of their conscience. Let us pray for those who support abortion, who are zealous for abortion, and for the lawmakers that allow abortion, that God would turn their hearts and they come to repentance and forgiveness. Let us pray for those lawmakers who are fighting against abortion and who desire it to be brought to an end. May they have strength to continue steadfast in this virtuous pursuit.
Peace be with you. May the devil be silenced, the world be hushed, and the Old Adam be drowned anew so that you hear nothing but the peaceful voice of your Savior Jesus who says, "I forgive you. I love you. I claim you as My own forever," Amen.
